Big News! We got a puppy!
My boys have always wanted a dog, but I was the scrooge for many years because I just didn’t think I could take care of it. As a mom of four boys, I had plenty to keep me busy. All the moms I talked to over the years told me that the bulk of the responsibility of taking care of the family dog is the mom’s. Now with three boys out of the house, and just one at home, I finally felt that I had the capacity to take on the responsibility of caring for a puppy.
Sunshine or “Sunny” is an Australian labradoodle. She’s super sweet and cute. She loves to play in the snow and be outside. I have to admit that with the arctic blast this past week, I would never have left my house if it wasn’t for our puppy.
We’re still working on potty training skills, but so far, she has been a great addition to our family. The boys got to see her before they went back to college, and they’re hoping she’s completely trained by the time they see her next.
Who knows, I might try making some healthy doggy treats ;).
